Offensive Linemen (23)

Larry Allen, Walter Jones, Kevin Mawae, Jonathan Ogden, Orlando Pace, Will Shields.

Modern Positional Average

Offensive Linemen: Steve Hutchinson, Walter Jones, Kevin Mawae, Orlando Pace, Will Shields.

*Steve Hutchinson replaces Larry Allen and Jonathan Ogden.  Allen and Ogden entered the Hall of Fame in the same year; hence we used the last six Offensive Linemen as a baseline as opposed to five.  This changed the averages from 2019’s: 223.2 Games, 152.8 Approximate Value, .6581 AV/G, 7.2 Pro Bowls, 2.4 First Team All-Pros.

  • First Team All-Pros 3.4
Recently resigning with the Eagles for one year, Peters now hit his first MPA in Games Played.  While the threshold met was the what is the least important accolade, Peters has also added an All-Decade honor to his list of achievements, which could be the honor that puts him over the top.

Stats

  • Games 205 (+8.4)
  • Approximate Value 139 (-2.4)
  • AV/G 0.6780 (-0.0412)

In the nine seasons that Pouncey has been named a Pro Bowl in eight of them.  In the off-season, the Center added an All-Decade Team honor to his resume.

Stats

  • Games 121 (-75.6)

Smith is coming off a really good 2019 season, where he was chosen for his seventh straight Pro Bowl.  The Cowboys Tackle hasn’t lost a step, and he has an AV/G that his higher than the MPA.

Stats

  • Games 131 (-65.6)
  • Approximate Value 102 (-39.4)
  • AV/G 0.7786 (+0.0594)
  • Pro Bowls 7 (-1.6)
  • First Team All-Pros 2 (-1.4)
Martin has gone six for six in Pro Bowls, with four First Team All-Pro Selections.  Martin increased his AV/G in 2019, and his fourth First Team All-Pro puts him over the MPA.  The only reason he isn’t higher on this list is that he only has six years of service, but this has been the best Right Guard in football for the last few seasons.

Stats

  • Games 94 (-102.6)
  • Approximate Value 72 (-69.4)
  • AV/G 0.7696 (+0.0504)
  • Pro Bowls 6 (-2.6)
  • First Team All-Pros 4 (+0.6)
Whitworth was a late bloomer, in that his Pro Bowls all came in the second half of his career.  While his AV/G is not that high, accumulatively he is approaching the Approximate Value of his respective MPA.  At age 39, there is only so much he has left, and omission of an All-Decade Selection does not help him. 

Stats

  • Games 215 (+18.4)
  • Approximate Value 135 (-6.4)
  • AV/G 0.6279 (-0.0913)
  • Pro Bowls 4 (-4.6)
  • First Team All-Pros 2 (-1.4)
Trent Williams refused to report to Washington after feeling they misdiagnosed a growth in his head that turned out to be cancerous.  Williams missed the entire 2019 season, and he will suit up for the San Francisco 49ers.  The Offensive Tackle went to seven consecutive Pro Bowls (2012-18) but only has one Second Team All-Pro, and he is below the AV/G.  A First Team All-Pro is critical for Williams chances.

Stats

  • Games 120 (-76.6)
  • Approximate Value 80 (-61.4)

This is likely going to be the last season for Mack in a Falcons uniform, and while he is a six-time Pro Bowler, we again reiterate how high the bar is Offensive Linemen.  Mack was named to the All-Decade Team.

Stats

  • Games 165 (-31.6)
  • Approximate Value 88 (-53.4)
  • AV/G 0.5333 (-0.1859)

Duane Brown has been a good Offensive Lineman to date, going to four Pro Bowls with a First Team All-Pro, but at age 34, he is running out of time to make a Hall of Fame case.  That is not impossible, as two years ago, he probably should have had that fifth Pro Bowl.

Stats

  • Games 170 (-26.6)
  • Approximate Value 114 (-27.4)
  • AV/G 0.6706 (-0.0486)
  • Pro Bowls 4 (-4.6)
  • First Team All-Pros 1 (-2.4)
Bakhtiari has been criminally underrated as he only has had two Pro Bowls, but his AV/G is well above the MPA, and he has been in the NFL for seven years, so this is not a brief career.  If he gets more First Team All-Pros as opposed to his Second Team All-Pros, he will gain traction that matches his advanced stats.

Stats

  • Games 105 (-91.6)
  • Approximate Value 86 (-55.4)
  • AV/G 0.8191 (+0.0999)
  • Pro Bowls 2 (-6.6)
  • First Team All-Pros 1 (-2.4)
DeCastro’s last five seasons has seen him selected for the Pro Bowl, but as we will say often (and again) the bar is high for Offensive Lineman, and he needs a few more years like this for viable consideration.

Stats

  • Games 112 (-84.6)
  • Approximate Value 70 (-71.4)
  • AV/G 0.6250 (-0.0942)
  • Pro Bowls 5 (-3.6)
  • First Team All-Pros 2 (-1.4)
While Schwartz was not chosen for the official All-Decade Team, there were some publications that had him on theirs.  Only a one-time First Team All-Pro and never a Pro Bowler, Schwartz is this generations Ken Riley.  Many of you know what we mean!

Stats

  • Games 128 (-68.6)
  • Approximate Value 91 (-50.4)

A career-Eagle and former Super Bowl winner, Kelce is putting himself on the fringe of Hall of Fame conversation.  Last season, Kelce was a First Team All-Pro and a Pro Bowl selection, marking the first time that he received both honors in the same season.

Stats

  • Games 126 (-70.6)
  • Approximate Value 78 (-63.4)

There are no other Offensive Linemen who debuted in 2018 who have been as good as Nelson.  Two years don’t make the Hall for an O-Lineman, but this start lays down the groundwork.  Nelson’s AV/G is over .2 of the MPA, which is very impressive.

Stats

  • Games 32 (-164.6)
  • Approximate Value 30 (-111.4)

Kalil played 12 years for the Carolina Panthers, and he then retired, only to unretire and join the New York Jets.  Kalil did not do much last year in New York, and he is a Free Agent.

Iupati’s last Pro Bowl was in 2015 and his time is running out.

Is this too low or too high?  There are many who we are struggling to rank, but Turner is the one we have the biggest conflict with.  On one hand, the now Chargers’ Right Guard has been to five straight Pro Bowls, and there are Hall of Fame Linemen who can’t say that.  On the other hand, there are no All-Pros (First or Second) in his list of achievements, and his AV/G is poor for a prospective Hall of Famer.

Stats

  • Games 84 (-112.6)
  • Approximate Value 44 (-97.4)
  • AV/G 0.5238 (-0.1954)
  • Pro Bowls 5 (-3.6)
  • First Team All-Pros 0 (-3.4)
Stanley was not on our radar last year, but a First Team All-Pro will change that quickly…especially in an 18 Approximate Value season.  The Tackle is now over the MPA for AV/G.

Stats

  • Games 56 (-140.6)
  • Approximate Value 42 (-99.4)
  • AV/G 0.7560 (+0.0368)
  • Pro Bowls 1 (-7.6)
  • First Team All-Pros 1 (-2.4)
Ramcyzk is well over the AV/G for his position, and the three-year vet was a First Team All-Pro last year.  Ramcyzk however has never been to the Pro Bowl, which is criminal.  If his next three seasons match his first three, he should be in our top 40 or close to it.

Stats

  • Games 47 (-149.6)
  • Approximate Value 43 (-98.4)
  • AV/G 0.9149 (+0.1957)

Armstead is a seven-year vet, and his best seasons have been the last two, where he was named to the Pro Bowl.  The Left Tackle is improving, and if he has a long and higher peak, he could make a Hall of Fame run.

Stats

  • Games 75 (-121.6)
  • Approximate Value 53 (-88.4)

Lewan’s three Pro Bowls were from 2016 to 2018.  Lewan’s 2019 season was basically treading water for his Hall case.

Stats

  • Games 85 (-111.6)
  • Approximate Value 49 (-92.4)

  • First Team All-Pros 0 (-3.4)
Pouncey had a good first season in Los Angeles (2018) where he went to his fourth Pro Bowl, but injuries held him to five games last year.  We are curious to see what he has left.

Stats

  • Games 114 (-82.6)
  • Approximate Value 55 (-86.4)

Penn was a Pro Bowl Selection in 2010, 2016 and 2017 and he is a Free Agent as of this writing.  Another season, and he could go over the advanced metric of 100 in Approximate Value.  That is a big deal in our eyes.

  • Approximate Value 99 (-42.4)
  • AV/G 0.5103 (-0.2089)
